Rhinoscopy is used to examine an animal’s nasal cavity. It often includes two procedures: Anterior rhinoscopy and Posterior rhinoscopy. In anterior rhinoscopy, the rhinoscope is advanced through the nose to examine the nasal cavity. In posterior rhinoscopy, the rhinoscope is advanced through the mouth to examine the back of the nasal cavity above the soft palate. Rhinoscopy can be used to diagnose inflammation, foreign bodies, tumors, and fungal infections.
